Hi! I just wanted to let you know that the 2013-2014 Oregon Readers Choice Award (ORCA) nominees have been announced. You may use R2R to purchase these titles so kids can start reading them over the summer in preparation for voting to select the winner during the next school year. Remember, ORCA is not just a school library activity... kids at your library can participate too!


*         Learn how kids at your library can vote to help select the ORCA winner next year: http://oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com/about-2/

Subject: R2R allowable collection development

Hello! I just wanted to remind you that the Ready to Read Grant (R2R) can be used for juvenile-teen collection development that supports summer reading. Allowable summer reading collection development projects include purchasing:


  *   Books and audio books to help kids prepare for next year's...

     *   Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award<http://www.olaweb.org/bccca-home> (the 2013-2014 list was announced in March)
     *   Oregon Readers Choice Award<http://www.olaweb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=205> (ORCA, the 2013-2014 list was announced in April)
     *   Oregon Battle of the Books<http://oboblsta.pbworks.com/w/page/5653620/FrontPage> (OBOB, the 2013-2014 list will be announced in May)
     *   Patricia Gallagher Picture Book Award<http://oregonread.org/2012-2013-patricia-gallagher-nominees/> (also an Oregon children's choice award program)


  *   Books and audio books on teachers' summer reading lists at your local schools.



*         Books and audio books on ALA's Association for Library Services to Children summer reading brochures: http://www.ala.org/alsc/compubs/booklists/summerreadinglist.


  *   Any type of library material for children birth to 14 years old related to next year's summer reading theme. The 2013 summer reading theme is 'underground' which includes any books about burrowing animals, archeology, geology, digging machines/certain types of construction that take place underground, subways, caves and more! There are bibliographies (book lists) in your summer reading manuals, but you don't have to stick to them. You can ask your colleagues for ideas, check publisher's websites to see if they have created their own underground themed lists, and search the Internet. You might start with searching for "2013 summer reading dig into reading" on Pinterest<http://pinterest.com/search/boards/?q=2013+summer+reading+dig+into+reading>. You'll find mostly programming and craft ideas, but you'll also find book ideas!


Remember that you may freely shift funding among items listed on your R2R application. You only need to contact me to get approval for a grant change if you want to spend R2R funds on something that was not included in your budget when you applied.



Please let me know if you have any questions.



Thanks,

Katie
